I recently visited the Mission in San Juan Capistrano, CA and was amazed by this wonderful place. The gardens and buildings were so inviting, I couldn't wait to get back to paint something from the area. I chose this view because of the various bell towers and also I loved the view of the dark arched walkway. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Judy

For Judy Mudd, creating a work of art means much more than simply reproducing something she sees. “It is more than painting a subject, it is expressing a feeling,” she explains. Judy develops her paintings with thorough reconnaissance work. She goes out on photo shoots in a variety of atmospheric conditions, sketches outdoors, takes notes, and completes color and value studies. From there, back in the studio, she lets the paintbrush guide her. Outside of painting, Judy also runs a real estate business with her husband. In many ways, her work in real estate can be seen via the architectural influences in her watercolors.
